I think the beauty of this song is that it can be applied to almost everyone's relationship to their home town. You don't have to be from Winnipeg to feel and understand the power of this song.
I agree, especially when the winters get equally cold.
still one of my favorite Weakerthans songs. I love the hockey reference in it "The guess who sucked the Jets were lousy anyway." with the truth behind a country that loves hockey and saw their team relocate to Arizona
